Ratings and Reviews
I finally purchased DocReview Pad to complete my suite, with Trial Pad and Transcript Pad. This app can do things I’ve previously had to do on a desktop PC but now it's so much easier and faster. And I can do it at home! The screens match the other apps so it felt familiar right away, and I was reviewing hundreds of documents on my new iPad Pro immediately. I’ve never been able to assign bates numbers so easily, in sequence, and not obscured by anything behind them like when I put them on a photo. And it exports straight to Trial Pad with the annotations I made using the Apple Pencil (which is so accurate for redactions and highlights), and sorted into folders based on the issues I assigned, which now can be assigned to individual pages in a document! My hesitation was because of the price, but this is so much less that what we were paying for desktop software.
Good idea, but still not perfect.
I bought this app thinking that it would be a one stop shop for the function of Notability and the organization aspect and integration of TrialPad. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Using the Apple Pencil is almost worthless. There is no palm rejection, handwriting looks like it was drawn with a mouse instead of a pen, and it consistently lags behind the Apple Pencil.
I use TrialPad and it may very well be the best trial/client presentation app available. DocReview Pad? Not so much. I can still integrate my handwritten notes from Notability (exported as PDF) into Trial Pad, but I was hoping to be able to use DocReview Pad for this same purpose. The handwriting aspect makes that impossible.
I gave it 3 stars because I see the potential, but the advertising and reviews written about this app are misleading when it comes to the Apple Pencil and handwriting capability. Here's to hoping I can get a refund of the $90 I spent only to find out Notability is better.
Thanks for your constructive review about DocReviewPad, and your compliments about TrialPad! DocReviewPad was never designed or meant to be used as a note taking tool, for that you should indeed use Notability (a very good app, and widely used in education for the features you mentioned). There are many different ways that attorneys and legal professionals review documents. Some prefer printed paper with a highlighter and pen, others prefer expensive and complicated desktop software (that have no pen tool at all). With DocReviewPad we tried to find a great balance between the power of computing and the simplicity of paper, while making it intuitive and mobile. We wanted to focus DocReviewPad on the important features for an attorney or legal professional to review documents: easily applying Bates numbers; assigning Issue Codes; marking documents with Tags (such as Confidential, Privileged, etc.); highlighting certain portions of pages; adding typed Notes that appear in-line with the documents and Bates numbers in useful reports; creating Production Sets; exporting subsets of documents straight to TrialPad and automatically organizing them into folders; and many more features. None of these features can be found in general note taking apps that have great handwriting recognition. We will continue to add new features and improvements to all our apps and appreciate our users feedback. Contact us at: email@example.com
Wait for the next version
While TranscriptPad and TrialPad are valuable applications for trial lawyers, this app should never have been released. It is unstable and frequently crashes. There is no option to import a document without bate stamping it. Once bate stamped, there is no way to change the numbering system. It does not interface with “open in” with mail, dropbox etc. When annotating, the ability to repeat annotations sometimes functions and sometimes does not. When moving to a new page, repeat annotations has to be reselected. In short, this app is of limited value and for its price more resembles an “Alpha” release than even a “Beta” release. Hopefully, it will get better down the road but this version has lots of problems.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
